That's the spirit. Imagine how much more fun it'll be when you can play that game on a trip-by-trip basis or on the regular commute to school. It's definitely worthwhile picking up some sort of gauge. Instant feedback is a great motivator.

Feel free to make a garage page and start posting your mileage, too.

I am hoping to do all of my fabricating and design myself.
Since your goal is saving money and you're already driving a 50 mpg car, that's pretty well a must. The payback on mods gets longer and longer the more efficient you make it.

Let us know when you start your mods!
